The centre was founded in 2004 by longtime friends McTimoney Chiropractors Caroline Arnott and Alan MacInnes, and yoga teacher Gerry Kielty after they realised they shared many of the same beliefs and students/patients.

It’s the first centre of its kind in Glasgow, offering everything from a full timetable of yoga classes to massage and chiropractic consultancy, all aimed to promote physical and psychological health and wellbeing amongst visitors.

Classes and Workshops

balance has twelve teachers working across its timetable, some focusing on a specific style or student and all led by co-founder Gerry Kielty who also teaches classes. The timetable is split between different levels of ability with plenty of options for beginners and frequent pregnancy classes. The studio also runs workshops to help build and grow your practice and understanding of yoga. These are affordable and a new schedule has been announced for 2021. All classes and workshops are currently being live streamed until further notice from the Scottish Goverment.

In normal times the cost of a single drop in class is £12, while a monthly unlimited class pass is £80.
